Welcome to Stourbridge House – Young Adults
|Purpose:||Moderate-Severe LD, ASD, Associated Behavioural Challenges, PMLD, complex care|
Stourbridge House sits within Progress Care’s range of preventative services, focused on supporting families to build resilience and take a break from day to day caring responsibilities while enabling young people to enjoy a break away from the family home.
The Service has been purpose built to provide specialist accommodation for young adults with moderate to severe learning difficulties, Autism, ADHD and associated behavioural challenges, adults accommodated at the home may also present with sensory impairment, physical disabilities, and sexualised behaviours or equally, with complex health care needs.
As we offer care for adults with a diverse range of needs, we undergo a careful matching process. This means that when young adults stay, they are with other young adults with similar needs and abilities to keep young people safe and to maximise the opportunities to build friendships and relationships.
We aim to work with young adults to support them in all aspects of their care, working towards agreed targets which are set to focus the personal development of adults in areas which present barriers.
A lot of emphases is put on the adults gaining independence and enjoying life to the maximum, with activities planned around their individual needs. We pride ourselves in maintaining relationships and working closely with new foster carers/parents, and welcome ideas and involvement.
As part of our commitment to providing high-quality services, we are continually striving to meet the targets of improved outcomes for young adults.
Stourbridge House comprises of 6 single bedrooms for either short term stays or respite breaks. All six rooms are on the first floor, suitable for wheelchair users and two rooms are fitted with integrated ceiling track hoists. The rooms are equipped with the latest acoustic monitoring which enables remote monitoring of young adults, reducing the need to conduct physical checks, giving the individuals a better night sleep and more accurate monitoring of medical conditions, allowing us to provide the right support at the right time and respect the privacy of the adults.
